Each day Sutton Lodge Day Centre collects its users from home to bring them to the centre and then takes them home again after they have had lunch. The centre needs more people willing to go on the rota to drive the minibus both in the morning and afternoon. Minibus drivers need to have excellent driving skills and be able to remain calm and unflustered if any problems arise while on route. They will also help to operate the tail lift for the minibus, to assist those people who cannot manage the steps.
